Child Development Services
FMWR Child Development Services (CDS) offers child care options for children ages six weeks to six years old. It is open to children of Active Duty military, DoD civilians and contractors, Reservists, and Retirees. All programs are developmental and promote physical, emotional, cognitive and social growth. The CDC believes that work of children is play, and it is through play that children learn. To support our commitment to quality programming, the CDC's are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and certified annually by the Department of Defense.
All staff undergo background checks and participate in ongoing training to include first aid, CPR, safety and health concerns, and child growth and development. Monthly tuition fees are based on a sliding scale of six income categories based on total family income. Full-day and part-day care, part-day preschool for 3 - 5 year olds, and drop-in hourly care are available through CDC centers.
